So what can I look back on this week?
What has made me smile?

When I heard the words last Friday morning
"it's only a cyst"
you just can't imagine how much relief flooded my body.
I am so grateful for the lovely people who looked after me that morning and made me feel at ease throughout - they truly are wonderful.

So, with a clear head, my drive to Cardiff was a lot easier than expected
 and I had the most wonderful weekend laughing, crying, eating, drinking and scrapbooking 
with some very lovely ladies.
I made some great new friends and hope that our paths will cross again.

This little monkey goes everywhere with me when "she" doesn't and I certainly had two great night's sleep.
Before too long it was all over and my drive home was easy (if not boring).

Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday found me in bed most of the time trying to shake off flu like symptoms that knocked me for six.
I am so very grateful that I have such a darling daughter, who took over in the mornings, before she went to school, to make sure the dog had been let out and fed so he wouldn't bother me for a few hours.

I can happily report that, today, I am back to "normal" and hoping to play catch up with everything I've neglected over the past few days.

So this week I am grateful for family, friends and health...
What has put a smile on your face this week?
